Vogue 1250 ~ Happy Easter!

So it's Easter. And Easter = Spring. And Spring = all things yellow....


And My New Dress....

Of course Easter for me means work is busy and lots of hours are spent there, so this post is brief!

Yellow is my favourite colour. It's bright, cheerful and pretty. Yet wearing yellow without another colour with it is another first for me. I am a fan of all things seasonal so I just had to make my first yellow dress.
And I am so glad I did. I had no idea that I would suit wearing yellow!

The yellow fabric is a lovely ponte roma jersey knit that I bought on eBay some time last year (Available Here) although it was much cheaper then than it is now!

The Pattern is Vogue 1250 Designed by DKNY (Donna Karan New York)

I particularly love the shape of the seam across the back. It's so flattering.

and of course the super cowl neckline

It's a nifty little pattern with only 3 pieces. Much to the delight of someone like myself who dislikes cutting out! It also makes up in no time at all.
I would call this an emergency pattern. Everyone should have one. If you need a dress quick and have a spare metre of fabric, this is the pattern to grab. An hour later, you're wearing it and out the door!

I am so chuft with this dress, don't be surprised to see a different version of it on my blog sometime soon. I've just got to make another in a patterned fabric! :)
